Perk-Up Scents



Did you know...
Different scents can help you perk-up?

Peppermint: People who do tasks like typing and filing can do it faster and more accurately after sniffing peppermint oil. So theres a good reason to pop that peppermint candy in your mouth while at work.

Jasmine: Can stimulate the brain waves that amp up alertness. Drinking a cup of hot jasmine tea could help you remember what you need to be doing..

Cinnamon: Inhaling this spice can improve your mood, vigor and concentration. Put a little sprinkle on your tissue and place it in your desk drawer. Every time you open the drawer you'll get a little boost.

Coffee: This may be why so many people have a cup of coffee just sitting there. The smell can boost your energy. Don't drink coffee? A small dish of coffee beans works just as well.

Lemon: This clean scent effects the brain as a mood enhancer and a source of stamina.
Squeeze a little into your next glass of water, while standing around the water cooler.

Hi there! Interesting reading for sure here! :)
Thanks for stopping by 'On The Bricks' and leaving the kind words!
Yes, it's ez at times to get stuck and spend time reading some sites at times. Most times I bookmark a site I really like and come back to it once I have finished making my drops. Then I can sit back and really enjoy it. :) Glad you enjoyed my site. Stop in anytime.
